    I don't work in Excel so I can't help much but I can give you a hint.
    Have a look at the Split() function

    Re: split cell in excel n put it in two other cells

    xlsheet is uninitialized; how should it know you mean to refer to a sheet (presumably the active one) in the workbook you just opened? Try this instead:

    text = xlapp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 2)
    Of course you'll need to fix other relatedreferences later in the code as well.

    Or add this line before you make any reference to xlsheet:

    Set xlsheet = xlapp.ActiveSheet
    That way you don't need to modify your references to xlsheet, unless they also contain other bugs.
